Beautiful location. The beach is all good size rocks and slippery, but beautiful view. easy to get to everywhere. Was disappointed at lack of iron & ironing board. Guess I should have checked the amenities closer.

Thanks for taking time to write a review for the Passage View. I'm sorry that you were disappointed that there was no iron and ironing board in your room. We do have irons and ironing boards for guests' use. When someone requests one, we deliver it to their room. We've just finished writing an amenities and information book. They are...

I stayed in 5 hotels in Campbell River and would definitely rate this #1. Amazing view of the Inside Passage: boats, planes, birds and drones all in the same picture. Balcony so private I could leave the door open and hear ocean and seagulls all night. The room was pretty, spacious, and so clean!

We decided to take the second floor, Great view of the Discovery Passage. No air conditioner but with the sliding door open, it was very cool. People passing on the walkway was kind of noisy but it was...

The Passage View does have wonderful views from your rooms' back slider door. There's a huge BBQ grill on the back lawn just perfect for grilling up locally purchased seafood. This is an older motel but the furnishing are good and clean. It's just that the older structure has thin walls. If fishermen or loggers or motorcyclists are up early,...

Thanks for taking the time to write a review for the Passage View. August has been a very busy month, so far. I'm sorry to hear that your sleep was disturbed by guests leaving the motel in the early morning. I'm glad you enjoyed the view and our guest bbq.

One night stay Jul 4, 2015. New owners are working hard to make improvements. Friendly and efficient reception. Fantastic waterfront view from third floor. No elevator but staff willing to help porter luggage. Not air conditioned but sea breeze cooled room especially if entrance door opened for a bit to create cross ventilation through patio door. Weather pushing 30 C...

We came here just before closing and were given a nice clean kitchenette room. The room had two comfortable queen beds, a flatscreen TV, and a walkout patio with picnic table. There was very friendly service in the office and a beautiful view. Would come back again.

Basic accommodation close to restaurants, coffee shops, gas, etc. Rooms are adequate but well worn. The serene water views are the main attraction. Friendly and welcoming reception. On a busy road but quiet at night.

A clean and comfortable motel, very reasonably priced, close to the centre of campbell river, with access to the beach. Easy to find and plenty of parking. It was interesting to talk to the owner, who had taken over in May, about the improvements she had already made, and what she planned to do.

Passage view was recommended to us by two different people for it's view and value. $100 gets you a more than adequately equipped room with fridge, microwave, free wifi, coffee etc. Front desk service was super friendly and helpful. Wow what a great view we had from the second floor. Be advised this is not a resort or high end...
